Hey guys!

So I hear this loud clang noise when I parked my truck at the gym today. Put it in reverse and it seemed like it was stuck as if my wheel bearings went out like before? Threw it back in drive and it drove no issues. So headed back home not to take a chance and no problems on the way. Parked the truck and did the 11-2 bearing check and what not and it feels fine. No noise or wobbling like last time. It spins freely
I do hear a scraping sound but I don't know if it's just the brake pads touching the rotor? But, I was looking at this and I'm wondering if this is the issue? I don't remember seeing just a white rubber cover or whatever should be there? Test drove the truck again and nothing. You think this is my problem?

Hey guys! So my drive shaft moves up and down easily! It should be firm right? Seems like the carrier bushing isn't holding the drive shaft in place? Seems really loose when I push it up as it bangs when it hits the top. U guys think this is my problem?

Here's the bushing. Seems like it's squashed?

Do you have a CBDB? Recommended for any 2 wheel drive that has 4" or more lift in the back.

I do! But it's the Maxtrac support bracket as you can see the bracket underneath as well as the 2 bolts/nuts going thru. You can see my sharpie line marks when I had to drill the holes out. Talked to my buddy who's a mechanic for Nissan and said the carrier bushing is shot and needs to be replaced. He said That's probably what's making the clunking sounds when the drive shaft is misaligned when it flexes up and down.

Hey Fish, the first picture I posted with the white cap there's something that use to cover it right like a metal washer/cap/cover or something? Cause I don't recall just a white plastic being there?

Yes it typically has a cover over it, probably popped off when the bushing failed.
